The Good Coup? Honduras One Year Later

Ad Feedback

The Central American nation of Honduras has finally started to rebuild its government after last year's political coup.

In June of 2009, Honduras was a country in chaos. Its president at the time, Manuel Zelaya, had been legally ousted from power.
    
Although the country's Congress and Supreme Court backed his removal, Zelaya tried to be reinstated as president. He even received support of the United States government.
    
Today, the county has moved past the crisis by electing a new president, Porfirio Lobo.

"Much is at stake on this Monday's first anniversary of the coup -- or, as it is also called within the broad-based resistance movement, 'the awakening of the people and the death of the two-party system,' Adrienne Pine, assistant professor of anthropology at American University, wrote on June 28, the tenth anniversary of the coup.

Marco Caceres, an Honduran native, directs Project Honduras, an international network of volunteers helping the country.  He offered his perspective on the situation in Honduras on the Sept. 27 edition of the CBN Newschannel Morning News. Click play to watch.
